Creating Multiple Streams of Affiliate Marketing Income

multiple stream income

Have you ever heard or read the phrase “multiple streams of income” before? Do you know what this phrase means? For many businessmen, creating multiple streams of income online or offline is one way of securing themselves as well as their businesses in the future. They also believe that it can also save them from the so-called famine effect in the business industry. Once you are engaged in affiliate marketing business, it is advisable if you have multiple streams of affiliate marketing income so that if one of those income streams vanished, it will not upset you the way losing your sole stream would. If you depend on just one source of income and this single stream has been downsized or has lain off, you’ll surely find yourself bankrupted and hopeless. Try to ask the most successful online entrepreneurs, and you’ll discover that they have established multiple streams of online income.

There is a businessman that said and attested that the very first step you must take in creating multiple streams of income is to assess or evaluate your resources. Start by assessing yourself first. Jot down your answers to the following questions: What are the talents, abilities, strength and gears that you possess? Are you gifted with excellent and creative writing skills? Can you do well at sales? Are you good in communicating with people? Are you born with an artistic skill or unique ability that other people don’t have? Through this, you can determine the kind of business where can possibly excel.

Next, look around and write down you assets and physical resources such as computer, color printer, scanner, digital camera, cell phone, CD or DVD burner. Write these all down because it can be used as a resource. Consider also your friends and family. Find out what do they possess that you have access to. Remember that no man is an island. You can use the talents, abilities, knowledge and resources of everyone you know.

That’s basically the initial step if you want to create multiple income streams. But if you’re already a webmaster or a site owner, you definitely have an edge. Why don’t you join affiliate marketing business to help you gain extra income out of your own website?

Being involved in affiliate marketing is one of the most desirable ways to make multiple sources of income. It is because affiliate marketing programs come in various shapes and forms. There are a large number of affiliate marketing programs that you can sign on with and start gaining bucks right away. In affiliate marketing, you can make money by promoting and reselling your affiliate products and by recruiting new affiliates. What’s good about this is that you can find widest array of training materials that can enhance your marketing abilities. In affiliate marketing, you can be sure that there are genuine products to promote and sell and there is real income to make.

Either part time or full time, being an affiliate marketer is an excellent way to create multiple income streams by means of promoting products and services from web merchants. Here, you can get affiliate commission without investing big bucks in making your own product and without worrying about book keeping, customer support and ecommerce. All you have to do is to promote and resell the products and services in your site and pass on potential customer’s the merchant’s site.

In affiliate marketing, it is advisable to promote more merchants in your site so that your visitors will have variety of destinations to choose from. Using multiple merchants in the same site or niche means only one thing – you have multiple streams of affiliate income. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this business strategy because this is one of the best ways to protect your business and expanding your horizons. Through this, you can be assured that you won’t experience crisis if ever one of your web merchants closed his/her program.

However, you should choose only those affiliate programs that interest you so that you can effectively advertise and promote them. Don’t ever be tempted into signing up for numerous affiliate programs in the hope that one of them will bring income. Select wisely and don’t be engaged in selling products you know nothing about. Go with the stuff that jives with your enthusiasm; your passion can capture your client by the nose and guide him/her to your affiliate link.

You should also work hard to make your multiple streams of income more stable. You can do this by embracing some strategies and tactics and by developing within yourself, some traits that can help you become successful in any kind of business such as patience, persistence and thirst for knowledge.

Lastly, just remember the adage that says “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” So that if one of them is lost, you can still have some to make omelets. And what do these eggs have to do with multiple streams of affiliate income? Well, it goes without saying that the more streams of income you possess, the bigger and better your money lake becomes.

5 Lifestyle Businesses That Can Set You Free

This article is a great read I found it on one of the Facebook Group I joined. Hope you can benefit from it!

A “lifestyle business” is a small business that you can run from nearly anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection.

Life style businesses are all about letting you live how you want to live, designing your life as you choose, while running your own small company.

Done right, in a lifestyle business you have no 80-hour work weeks, no need for venture capital funding, no rented office spaces, no warehouses, and usually no employees.

This isn’t traditional entrepreneurship of working yourself ragged to build a company.

Rather than you living for the business, the business exists to take care of your needs while affording you the freedom to live the life you choose.

Your goal in a lifestyle business generally isn’t to sell the company off in ten years for a hundred million dollars – that’s an entirely different ballgame. Instead, it’s a compromise of money earned and time off.

Depending on the business you choose, how hard you work at it, how effective you are at building your business, and how much time you like to take off, your income might be $50,000 a year, $200,000 a year, or in some cases, possibly even a million dollars a year.

You decide how big you want to build your business, whether you want to do it alone or with employees or contractors, where you want to work, when you want to work and so forth.

Typically, you’re going to start small – doing as much as you can handle and no more.

Then you’ll decide how much you want to grow, assuming you want to grow at all.

Your business supports your lifestyle, rather than you sacrificing your lifestyle for your business as you would in a traditional startup.

With a lifestyle business, you can…

– Start with little to no money
– Easily control your costs
– Operate your business for many years
– Generate a good income
– Pursue your passions and interests
– Enjoy time freedom, deciding when to work and when to ‘call in sick’
– Enjoy financial freedom, cranking things up to earn more, or taking on less work to have more leisure time
– Enjoy location freedom, working where you want to work

To get started in a lifestyle business, your first steps are to write down your goals and choose your business model.

Your goals might range from achieving financial independence to creating your own fortune. And they might be to help a few people, change the world or anything in between.

We’ve chosen the 5 most popular lifestyle businesses to help you get started.

1: Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is an arrangement in which an online retailer pays you a commission for traffic or sales generated from your referrals.

For example, let’s say you’re an affiliate for the XYZ product. You recommend to me, your reader or subscriber, that I purchase XYZ and I do. You earn a commission on that sale because you are the one who referred me.

You’re promoting other people’s products – often through an affiliate network – to earn a commission when the people you refer buy the product.

And once you have your own products, you can offer promoters a financial incentive through an affiliate program to promote your products, too. We’ll cover this in the next section.

In affiliate marketing, it generally takes four parties to make a sale:

The product owner, or merchant

The affiliate who promotes the product (that’s you)

The customer who buys the product, thanks to your referral

The affiliate network, which acts as an intermediary between you (the affiliate) and the merchant.

Tip: Affiliate networks can also serve as databases of products you can promote. Clickbank.com is an excellent example of an affiliate network.

There are many ways to market affiliate products, but for our purposes here, we’ll talk about one of the easiest and most common methods to get started: Reviewing products in your niche.

By writing reviews, you can come across as an impartial third-party person who is helping the reader to decide between different options.

Well written reviews are not only helpful, but they can also rank high in the search engines, earning you free traffic.

Get the products in your hand and use them before writing your reviews, so that you know what you’re talking about.

Write about what you like and dislike concerning the product. Talk about how you personally used it, what you used it for, and how well it did its job. And be sure to include your affiliate link for those who want to purchase it.

On your website, be sure to collect email addresses of your visitors. You can do this with a Hello Bar across the top of the page, or an Exit Popup when someone leaves the page, and of course by adding a sidebar widget to every page. 
In all of these locations, offer something for free such as a free report or video in exchange for your visitor’s email address.

Then keep your list apprised of all your latest product reviews. Even with a few hundred people on your list, you can create significant sales by sending them regular updates.

There are many more ways to sell affiliate products, but this will give you a good start.

Affiliate Marketing Tips

Paid Advertising – If you get good at using paid advertising, you can earn money on tap anytime you like. The key is to spend less getting a customer than you earn from that customer.

And to do this, you’ll want to test, test and test some more. Ideally you want to spend as little on advertising as possible while getting the biggest return.

Life Time Customer Value – It’s important to realize that the lifetime value of a customer is almost always more than you initially earn from the first sale.

Once a customer knows you and trusts you, they may buy from you numerous times. Which means you can sell them not just one product, but many products over the course of weeks, months or years.

There Is No Ceiling on Income – You can promote as many products as you have time and traffic for.

Naturally, some products will be more lucrative than others. If a product has already been promoted to death, consider choosing something newer.

However, It Will Take Time to Make Serious Money – There is a learning curve to affiliate marketing. Plus, the real money is found in your email list, which takes time to build. Be patient and keep working at it. Your first goal? Is to simply make that first $1.

It’s a learning process and takes time. Most people who fail in affiliate marketing simply quit too soon, before they have a chance to learn what they’re doing.
Learn from Others – Many, MANY affiliate marketers have gone before you and become hugely successful. Fortunately, some of them have created courses on how to duplicate their success.

There is no need to make the same mistakes they made or try to invent new systems when you can simply copy what they do.

2: Selling Your Own Information Products

You can create and sell information products in almost any niche where people are willing to spend money to get information.

And you can get started before you even have your first product. In fact, it’s the best way to do it. Otherwise, you could spend weeks creating a product that no one wants to buy.

Here’s the process for refining and testing your idea prior to creating the product:

You have a product idea. Great! This is the place to start, but don’t get too attached to your idea yet.

Look for what products and services are already out there with the same idea. 
Consider how you might improve upon them by delivering something that solves not only the customer’s problem, but also fills the gaps left by competing products.

Amazon is a great place to do this sort of research. You can find books on similar topics and see what the reviewers say.

Maybe there are topics missing from the books, or problems that aren’t properly addressed. Your information product can fill these gaps.

You can also check out Buzzsumo, which shows you what’s popular, based on social shares.

And finally, check on Youtube to find out what people want to know about this topic, what videos they’re watching, what their comments are and so forth.

Now that you’ve refined your idea, it’s time to validate it. After all, you don’t want to create a product just to find out that no one wants to buy it.

And the way you’re going to do that is to ask people to pay for it.

You’ll find these people by taking the URL from one of the posts on Buzzsumo and plug it into a tool called Topsy.

For example, maybe the Buzzsumo post was on how to build your own greenhouse.

By plugging that link in, Topsy will show you a list of all the people who tweeted that greenhouse post’s link.

You then hit the reply button, and directly tell them about your idea. For example, @bobcushman Saw you like greenhouses, too ? Would you buy a step by step video series that shows you exactly ow to build your own?

Make sure to ask if they will BUY your idea, not just if they like it. Saying they like something is not the same as spending money on it.

If they respond with a yes, give them the chance to buy it by replying with something like, “Awesome, here’s the link to buy: [LINK] Will create it if 5 people buy.
Once you cross your threshold and you’re sure that people will actually buy your product, then you can start to create it.

The actual process of creating of your product could take up an entire book of information – too much to include it all here. But if you’re interested, I’ll be recommending my favorite course on product creation in the near future.

Information Product Creation Tips

Perfection is the Enemy

Your job is to create a product that is ‘good enough.’

For an information product, it’s important that you give useful, helpful information that your buyers can immediately put into use.

It’s not necessary to make it read like Shakespeare or have it formatted like a work of art.

Get your product good enough to ship, and then start selling it. If you wait until it’s perfect, you’ll never launch anything.

Don’t Go it Alone

Get affiliates on board as quickly as possible because they can reach far more potential buyers than you can.

Yes, you’ll pay them 50% commissions or better, but it’s totally worth it. Just think that for every sale they make, you’ll earn a percentage. But for sales never made, you earn nothing.

You can use tools such as Gumroad or Digital Product Delivery to easily set up affiliate programs and allow partners to collect commissions on their sales.

Stuck for Content? Interview Experts

Maybe you don’t have the knowledge about your topic to make a great product. That’s okay! Interview experts in your niche, record the interviews and transcribe them. Then take everything and organize it into a useful product.

Be sure to extensively interview your experts, getting specific action steps to use as the core of your product.

And be brave when seeking out experts. You’re going to be amazed at the people who say yes. That said, not everyone will agree to being interviewed, and that’s okay. You don’t need everyone, you just need some.

Doctors, professors, PhDs, business people, authors and all kinds of experts will agree to being interviewed. After all, it’s extremely flattering, and some of them want the publicity, too.

You can offer to share profits with your subject, or not. It’s up to you. Frankly, I think it’s a great idea to give them a percentage, or to offer to donate a percentage of profits to their favorite charity.

Hate Writing? Create an Audio or Video Course

There’s nothing that says you have to create a written product. In fact, some people prefer video or audio.

So, if you love to talk about your subject, go ahead and make an outline, and then start recording yourself. Have the recordings transcribed and you can use the transcriptions as a bonus to your main product.

3: Blogging & Podcasting

It might seem strange that we would lump two different things – blogging and podcasting – together.

But really, they are quite similar, and you might choose to do both simultaneously.

As a blogger, you’re writing blogposts or articles and posting them on your online blog on a regular basis for all to read.

As a podcaster, you are speaking, rather than writing. You’re making digital broadcasts available for downloading and listening.

Your blog or podcast can be on any topic in the whole wide world, but it’s best to narrow it down to something that can be turned into a profit for you.

Choose a niche that people are enthusiastic about and in which people also spend money. Here are some examples:

Health:

– Weight loss
– Weight gain
– Muscle building
– Curing diabetes
– Getting pregnant
– Diets
– Nutrition
– Depression
– Natural health
– Hair loss
– Yoga
– Stop smoking
– Headaches
– Herbal Supplements
– Anxiety
– Stress management
– Addiction
– Exercise

Dating

– How to get a boyfriend
– How to get a girlfriend
– How to get your ex back
– How to improve your love life
– Dating advice for men
– Dating advice for women
– How to save your relationship
– Online dating

Making Money Online

– Online jobs
– Blogging
– Business opportunities
– Search engine optimization
– Facebook marketing
– Twitter marketing 
– Youtube marketing
– Traffic generation
– Copywriting

We’ve barely scratched the surface with this list, but you get the idea.

If people are interested in the topic and willing to spend money in that topic, then it’s probably a good one.

You might be wondering… how do you make money by blogging?

Typically, you’ll start by first creating your blog and adding useful content.

We could write an entire book on content creation alone. Suffice it to say, you’re going to write about what your target audience wants to read.

Once you’ve begun making great content, it’s time to go find blog readers and get then to your blog.

Your job is not just to write blogposts, but also to promote your blog so that readers can find you. To do this, find out where your potential readers hang out online.

What are they currently reading? What forums do they frequent? What podcasts do they listen to? Are they engaged in social networks?

Once you’ve found your potential readers, offer an enticement to get them to visit your blog and subscribe to your email list. A good report on a hot topic should do it.

When they get to your blog, build engagement and community. Respond to comments and do everything in your power to keep them coming back to your blog time and time again.

Again, we could write an entire book on how to grow your blog following, but for our purposes here we’ve got to keep it short. (Watch your email, I’ve got a great blogging resource to share with you.)

Next, you start making money from your blog through a variety of income streams.

You can offer affiliate products to your readers or sell your own products. You can sell advertising on your blog, such as Google Adsense.

You can even run events, such as big conferences or simply smaller meet-ups for your readers.

You can promote memberships to give you recurring income or create your own membership to offer to your readers.

You can promote other business and services, do consulting or public speaking… really, once you’ve got the audience, there are a myriad of ways to make money blogging, and you can pick and choose any combination you like.

Podcasting works much the same way. You’ll start out by recording your first couple of podcasts, and then you’ll start working on getting subscribers to your podcast.

Last, you’ll monetize your podcast by promoting your own products, other people’s products or whatever method you choose.

Blogging and Podcasting Tips

You’re Not Alone

Blogs and bloggers number in the millions, with podcasts steadily gaining ground, which might seem discouraging with so much competition out there.

But if you have something unique to say, or a special expertise, or you’re especially good at interviewing experts, either one of these avenues might be for you.

No Expertise? Be a Reporter

And if you’re not an expert but you have a passion, you can take the role of reporter and report the latest news and pieces of interest to your readers.

This is a great way to build a large following, especially if you put your own unique slant and personality into your writing and podcasting.

Profitability Will Take Time

You’ll need time to build a following and get subscribers, which is why it’s best to start blogging or podcasting part time while you do something else for income.

Earnings Vary Greatly

It’s impossible to say what you could earn, since it will depend on your niche, how well you do at building an audience, and how you choose to monetize your blog.

You’ll Become Well Connected

As you become more well known in your niche, you’ll find yourself becoming friends with some of the experts in your niche. If you’ve ever wanted to meet them or talk to them, then becoming one of their peers with your own blog or podcast is a great way to do it.

4: Freelancing

Freelancing is doing jobs – usually over the internet, but it could be in person – on a job-by-job basis.

According to Forbes, between 2005 and 2015, 94% of the 10 million jobs created were either freelance or temporary gigs.

This shows that the demand for freelancers is high and continues to grow, while traditional 9 to 5 day jobs are in a steady decline.

It’s impossible to say how much you would earn as a freelancer, since it will depend on what kind of work you do, how much you charge and how many jobs you take.

But according to Payoneer’s data, the average freelancer works 36 hours a week and earns $21 per hour – and it should be noted that’s not in one particular country, but across the world.

Freelancers in the U.S. make an average of $31 per hour.

What can you do as a freelancer? That will depend on the skills you have now and the skills you are willing to learn, but here are some ideas:

To get started in freelancing, you typically need a computer or laptop, any necessary software and a way to get clients.

Many freelancers start out on Upwork.com to get their first clients, but it will depend on the contacts you already have as well as your chosen niche.

You can do freelancing from almost anywhere you have an internet connection, which is why it makes a great lifestyle business.

Freelancing Tips

Freelance Work Isn’t Just One-Time Projects

Start-ups and small businesses typically hire freelancers for short-term projects, but recently the trend has begun to change. Companies are now integrating freelancers into their core business as a way of running lean.

It is possible to get freelance positions that last as long as six months, meaning steady work and steady pay for you.

Local is Meaningless

Because you work over the internet, you can take clients from anyplace in the world where you speak their language.

This also means you can work from anyplace you have an internet connection, from home, your local café or across the world on a working vacation.

Rejection is Part of the Job

It’s a number’s game. You go after 6 jobs and you only get maybe 2 to 4 of them. Don’t get discouraged when you get a no, just look at it as being that much closer to a yes.

In the beginning it can be tough, but as soon as you start to get jobs under your belt, getting more jobs becomes easier.

You Must Build a Portfolio

Even if you’ve never done work for anyone before, you need a portfolio. For example, if you want to write articles and blogposts for companies, write several samples to show prospects. It’s much easier to sell your services once they have an idea of what you can do for them.

It’s Hard to Separate Home from Work

If you’re working at home, you will be continually interrupted by the phone, family, and those dishes that need to be done.

You may find yourself putting work off to do other things, and then trying to catch up in the evenings when you should be spending time with the family.

Your best bet is to block of time each day when you do nothing but work. Think of it as ‘going into the office,’ much like if you had a regular job. This will greatly simplify things and lower your stress, as well as allowing you to get your work done.

Scheduling can be Tricky

You have no work on Monday, and Tuesday morning you have 3 or 4 clients who suddenly all need work done by Thursday. You’ll want to devise a system for dealing with this sort of thing. And you may need to sometimes say no if you simply can’t fit a job in.

You’re Probably Not Charging Enough

In the beginning you’ll want to take most any job at most any price just to get the experience.

But once you’ve done a few jobs and shown what you can do, it’s time to start raising your prices accordingly.

Consider how much value you are giving your customers, as well as how much of your own expertise and time you are investing in each job. Let your clients know that they do indeed get what they pay for, which is why you are not the cheapest.

Which brings up one last point… never market yourself or your skills on price alone. Being the cheapest is a sure way to the poor house. You will have to take on too much work, which means the quality will suffer, and you will lose repeat clients.

It truly is best for everyone if you learn to charge what you, your skills and your work are worth.

5: Coaching

This is an incredibly broad field, encompassing everything from teaching people how to get a specific outcome in a specific niche, to general life coaching and even executive coaching.

Let’s talk about Life Coaches vs Executive Coaches: Both use coaching techniques to motivate their clients to reach specific objectives, usually through learning, making life changes and instilling new, helpful habits.

Life coaches may help with work-related goals as well as goals in all areas of life, both personal and professional.

Executive coaches, however, specifically concentrate on career and employment related goals for their clients.

A life coach should at least have a high school diploma or GED, and the ability to help others reach their goals. Life coaches’ median salary for 2016 was $46,099, with a projected job growth of 8 to 13%.

But the fact is, life coaches who do well make considerably more – achieving six figures within 2 to 3 years. As with anything else, the variables are too great to predict how much you might make.

If you prefer to be an executive coach, your earning potential is higher. The median salary for 2016 was $95,000, with an expected growth of 13% over the next ten years. Executive coaches generally have Master’s degrees, but this is not a requirement.

Life coaches and executive coaches meet with their clients – either in person or via the internet or phone – and help their clients identify specific goals to reach and problems to resolve.

Coaches usually develop action plans specific for each client, designed to promote the success of their client. Plan on spending time with each client once per week or so, until the client feels they can go it alone. As a coach, your clients might be with you for several weeks or several months, and occasionally they will continue to call on you periodically for years to come.

As a life coach, you will likely work on a wide range of personal or workplace goals with your client.

Or as an executive coach, you will likely focus on working with managers and executives and other employees in their workplace environment.

To get started as a coach you will likely want to have a website showcasing your experience and success, as well as a way of reaching potential clients.

Coaching Tips

Job responsibilities of a life coach include:
– Assessing their client's current situation
– Developing a plan
– Identifying activities that can lead to goal achievement
– Meeting with clients
– Monitoring their clients' progress
– Job responsibilities of an executive coach include:
– Meeting with clients
– Identifying desired outcomes for each client
– Clarifying obstacles
– Promoting willingness to learn
– Helping clients embrace philosophical changes

Sell More Than Coaching

You only have so many hours in the day, which means you can only actively coach a certain number of clients.

But if you have information products of your own, or even affiliate products you can recommend, then you can offer these to your clients. It helps them to get results faster, and it increases your bottom line.

Realize that Not Everyone is Coachable

Just because they need you doesn’t mean you want to be their coach. When you run into someone who wants a new life but won’t listen to anything you say or put in the work to change, don’t waste your time.

They will eventually get mad at you because they’re not getting results and may even ask for a refund.

This is why it’s best to screen potential clients and let them know up front what you expect from them.

You’re not a fairy godmother – you don’t wave a wand and change their life.

You’re a coach, and you expect them to put in the time and effort to make the changes they want and need.

Use Contracts

New coaches don’t see the need for contracts until one side or the other has a problem with expectations. You thought they wanted to lose 30 pounds, and they thought you were going to turn them into a movie star? Whoops. Clearly state rules and expectations within the contract at the very beginning so there are no misunderstandings.

Do Not Chase Clients

If they don’t show up for an appointment, don’t chase them down. They are still paying for the appointment (as specified in the contract) so a simple email or text is enough. Anything more and you look desperate. Your clients are adults – treat them as such.

Use Questionnaires

Create a questionnaire for potential new clients so you can understand their desires and they can get clear on what they want to accomplish.

Offer Both Private and Group Coaching

Not everyone can afford to hire you one-on-one, so offer group coaching in addition to private coaching. This increases your income as well as broadening your client-base. Some of those group coaching clients will eventually become private coaching clients as well.

You’re Not the Right Coach for Everyone

And that’s okay. When you first speak to a potential client, if it doesn’t seem like a good fit, have the sense to not sign them up as a client. It will save you and them headaches down the road.

Coach for Free to Get Experience

If you have no prior coaching experience, offer free coaching services to several people for free. Once they are achieving results, ask them to do a video testimonial for you to help you build your reputation and get paying clients.

If none of these resonated with you, then stay tuned, because next month we’re going to feature 4 more lifestyle businesses – one of which is bound to be right for you.

How to Make Money With Twitter

How To Make Money With Twitter

Introduction – What is Twitter and how it helps a person?
There are a number of ideas that emerge on the Internet every day. Some of these ideas become a success as soon as they get launched. It is just that the new application that got launched will make more money for the website. For example, as soon as video calling got introduced on the net, it changed the idea of interaction for many users. On the other hand, there are many ideas or applications that are not a success.
As people get used to the application and start using it, it becomes very difficult for them to stay without it and they think why was it not launched earlier? We can say that Twitter is one of those applications on the net that a user can’t live without. The system is very simple. It allows users to send small messages. The site is active as well as an addiction for users. The business owners also use it to promote their business.

Twitter is there to send messages
Since the time people use Twitter to send messages across to their friends, they have sore thumbs. This is because of typing messages on the website. People enjoy it because they don’t have to give extra effort and at the same time it is a lot of fun. This pleasure is good enough for people to promote the site, but there are other advantages as well. The website is an excellent tool to gather information and a good networking tool. The most important thing to remember on Twitter is the message that one sends is known as tweet on the site. The person who knows one another can see that at any point in time and the person who is not a friend will not have access to the message.
Twitter gives an opportunity to the people or user to introduce themselves and their services to new people. The site will help those people to come and play a valuable part in the life of the user so that they become good friends. This is the part that Twitter plays in social networking. It does not stop here. The site also helps the companies in promoting their business. There are many people on the site who are users of it. They are there to help in promotion of the business if the company wants to take their services.  
The other important resource on Twitter is the promotion of blogs Like Facebook. It has been created by Twitter to help the people in getting more services from the applications on the net.  
Twitter is a site where people come to chat, play, get to make new friends, stay in touch with distant relatives and friends and at the same time promote their business and get new business.
The basic difference is that Twitter has followers and Facebook has friends and relatives. On Facebook people can send long messages but on Twitter the maximum character that can be sent in the message is 140. On Twitter the message can go directly to the mobile which is not there on Facebook. As the number of followers increase on your account, your popularity will grow accordingly and at the same time you will have more influence. As internet has a large community, it can build the same for the user without any trouble. This will save a lot of time for the user to build a strong community.
The most important thing to remember for the person who is promoting their business on the net is that he/ she should always keep the content interesting, valuable and full of fun.

Creating a profile for business is boring
To create a profile on Twitter that is interesting is not fun for the creator. The case can be more boring if the person wants to create the profile for his/her business. This is because the person has to keep in mind that he/ she should not boast about the business and at the same time he/ she should sound professional.
The work that the creator does and at the same time maintains the dignity of the work is not at all easy, but the website Twitter makes it very easy for the creator. The person is only given 160 characters to describe the business. Due to this, the creator does not have to go into the details of the business or talk about the function and the client in details at the same time. The basic thing that the creator has to do is to simply state important facts on the site. For example, if the person is promoting a site that deals in sports, they can simply write about the “Football fan, youth coach and all-round sports nut with dodgy knees. If the site deals with photography, then they can easily mention “I’ve always got a camera with me and I shoot far too many pictures.” See if the person writes about things in such a fashion then the job becomes easy for him/ her. It is also easy for the visitor of that site to understand as to what the business is all about.
Twitter does not allow the person to write things that are not important. There are just basic facts about the business since the site does not give much space to write about it. There are two important things that the creator should do. One is to put a photo on the profile. This is important because the photograph will attract a lot of viewers on the profile and it might be that they get interested in the business. Just in case if the photograph is not present, then the users of the site will feel that the people dealing with the business are not serious. This is just because when they add their photo on the site, they expect to see the other photograph in return.
At the same time they should remember that the photo they load should be a close up one so that it is clear. The site also allows changing the background colors of the profile. The creator of the profile should also personalize their profile. If the person is trying to promote their business, then they should try using a background. Twitter also allows a person to add their URL.

Stay in touch with people with the help of Twitter
The easiest way to find a person or to stay in contact with the people is to make an account on Twitter. Here the person should look for the people they know. The popularity of Twitter is such that the person should definitely find the people that they are looking for. More over the job is made much easier as soon as the person takes out a leaf from the page of Facebook.
It has the feature through which they can scan the mail in the web and contact the people who are there on the web. At the same time one can send out invites to people they know. They can also get help from the search engine to locate the people. This is the ideal place for the person to start so that they do not feel that they are alone on Twitter. The only problem that the person can face here is the search engine will not help the user in reaching the people they don’t know.  
The best part on Twitter is that it will help the people in making new friends. This can simply be done by adding them in the list of friends so that they are aware as to who is trying to follow them. The best part is that the person does not have to wait for the permission from the person who they are trying to follow. Anyone who is a member of Twitter is public unless they restrict their information. It is a public site that allows all the people to know what the other person is up to. To follow the person, the user just has to hit the follow button and then the tweets will come automatically on the page of the user.  
To find stranger on the site can be simple and to follow them can be very easy, but to follow a person whom the person knows can be real fun. As soon as the user adds someone they know on Twitter, they get the benefit to add all the people the other person is following. This is because he/ she will have the access to see all the people who are following them and at the same time the people the other person follows.
If the visitor/ user feels that they have an interest in knowing the person who is in the list of the people he/ she is following, they can add them to the list. Ultimately it will happen that there are many people who are following you and at the same time the list of the people you follow increases. It should also be kept in mind that it won’t be possible for the person to read each and every tweet that is posted on the profile. The person can only pay attention to the people they are interested in interacting with.

There’s no right or wrong number of times you should Tweet each day, or when. Instead, focus on creating a regular cadence of content that’s relevant to your target audience and authentic to your business.

Need some inspiration? Here are five best practices to help you create Tweets that spark conversations and keep your audience engaged.

Twitter helps a person in making friends
For a long time, the Twitter website is just described in one way. It is just stating that the information on the site just flows in one direction, but it is not the case in any chance. While the main purpose of the Twitter website is to let the people know exactly what the person is thinking, for that matter listening. It is just like a slow moving messenger for the public. It is also an instant messenger. The user of Twitter also gets the privilege to ask any question they want to and at the same time they are also asked many questions by the people who visit their profiles. In fact through Twitter people can get many answers to the questions that can solve many problems in their life. In fact Twitter has become a major strength for many people to solve their problems.  
The site is a major giant in which there are all sort of people who can discuss any topic and they don’t mind in giving their advice to the people who want to take help from them. In short the person can think that Twitter is a valuable resource for many people who want to use it.
As soon as the person sees a tweet on the profile he/ she can respond to it immediately as there are arrows at the end of the tweet that will let the person respond. Basically every action that is done by the person in any way is contributing to the conversation of the other person. Due to this, the person becomes a valuable part of the community and thus it increases the chance that the other people will follow you at the same time. 

Making friends on Twitter is not difficult to do but making good friends that you'll enjoy tweeting with takes time and patience. Learning how to make friends on Twitter is an important part of this networking opportunity. The friends you find and get to know will make or break how effective this tool will become for your business or personal life.

The person who is using Twitter or is making their profile on it should keep in mind that to make a long list of followers it takes time. It cannot be done overnight. It is a lengthy process. There is no shortcut for the same and this is just the result of strong network on the site. At the same time, posting strong tweets so that the people enjoy reading it also plays a vital role in making a strong network.  
In Twitter the peo

ple engaged with the same also helps the person in making good friends and at the same time it is fun for them as well.

Twitter helps the person in getting attention in the office
The website Twitter relies on small posts and at the same time the posts on the profile are effective and its results are massive. The site has got major money to the owner or one can say the maker of the site. It is not only that, it helps the people in developing major relationship at the same time. The readers of the profile and the blog can exactly know as to what that particular person is up to. This is very different from what the person does through email. In this, the person gets the update from the other person in seconds as it just takes a few moments to post.  
There is a major difference of the people who stay online and then they chat with other people. It is necessary for both the people to stay online but that is not the case with Twitter. The most important or one can say dramatic part comes when there are a group of people who work together and they are scattered around the world and at different places. This is taking place on regular basis. There are people who even outsource their business outside their country. There are many interpreters that follow the same path. In short, a person who wants to build a strong team and wants to do good work, it is not important for them to stay in the same office. They can work from any part of the world. This had become possible with the launch of internet in the world.
Before the launch of the internet, people in the world communicated with the help of the telephone. But now the person does not have to wait for hours to talk to the person they want. They just have to log on to the net and they can start talking to each other. Thus Twitter has made it possible for the person to know exactly what their friend is doing in their daily life. At the same time they can know as to what they are thinking as well. Whatever the person, does he/she can post it on their profile. The person will write the details on Twitter and it will start tweeting. Thus, the person will not have to wait for the telephone call.
Thus the employees of a company just have to tweet and their fellow members will come to know if the other member is facing any problem. If there is any problem in work that is faced by the person, then they can just tweet and their colleagues will help him/ her out.
Also there are many colleagues in the company who don’t feel that they should talk to anyone. They are reserved. Hence with the help of twitter they can help the person or colleagues who can get guidance from different people. There are many people who don’t get the attention from their colleagues. Thus they feel left out. But when they see that the colleague is working and at the same time tweeting then they can see that the particular person is someone who they can take help from.
Thus Twitter helps a person who is not getting attention in the office.

There are some good training posted by Wealthy Affilaite Member, among some of the training and tutorials, the member has shared one of the strategy she is using to improve the click through rate.

Here are 5 quick tips to raise your click-through rate to a new level

1. Try to use 120 to 130 characters to increase your chances for a click-through. According to a study done by twittercounter, this is the most effective length for a click-through.

2. Use the words "check" "via" and "please" for an increased click-through rate

3. If possible, spell out "please retweet", instead of using "RT"

4. Post as the right time – for example, runners will be on twitter early in the morning, so if that is your niche focus on that time, while stay-at home moms, are most likely to be only in the mid-afternoon hours, and after lunch.

5. Re-post a link more than once, but use different wording each time to keep your tweet fresh.

The tweets on Twitter help the person in getting close
The team of members in a company that tweets with one another should have such an effect that they feel close to each another. This can only come when the fellow members have great understanding as well as great communication. Imagine if the same thing can be done with the buyer and what effect will it have on them. If the company knows as to what the buyer or clients want from them or for that matter if the company knows as to what the buyers think, then that can help the business to prosper.
Also, the company will know as how to keep them happy. Also if the buyer is on Twitter and the company adds them in their profile, they will come to know if the client is satisfied with them or not. If they have any problems, they can solve it in just a short span of time. The company will have great advantage from the website of Twitter as compared to their competitors.
When one brings this to practice, it is not as easy as it sounds. It is natural that to follow customers online is a difficult task. In such a case, to follow team members is not at all difficult. The company can always tell them to join the site but before that they should take a look if the client is already there. If they are not there, then they should be informed about the benefits that they can get from tweeting. If the person can encourage them to make a profile on Twitter, then that would be the first step to victory for them in the communication field and that one can say would be beneficial for the company as well as the customer.  
For example, there are many airlines that take the help of Twitter to promote their business. Not only this, practically all the companies in the world have their profiles on Twitter. This way they can promote their business and also they can solve the problems of their customers. This saves a lot of money and time for the company as well as for their clients. Twitter has made the life of people simple.

Design is not important for Twitter
For any brands to get the right design is vital. The importance is such that the person should not even try themselves in laying their hands on it. In fact they should only hire a professional designer to do the job. It would not be very expensive because there is nothing much that needs to be designed, more over the results that one will get will be worth the money spent and the person wont repent spending it at all.
The person who visits Twitter or uses it does not do it to look at the background. Also it is rare that they will come and visit the Twitter page of any particular person more than once. The only reason that the followers come to the Twitter page is to see who the person is and then they will sign up to read their messages. This means that the tweets that get posted on Twitter are the most important part of the profile. It is a fact that the content plays a vital role on internet. But on Twitter what the person writes is more important than the content of the entire website. This is because the person on twitter can’t post their pictures or any sort of media. What they can post is the information and that also should be fun to read for the next person. It is important that the message that gets posted on the site should be right. This is not at all difficult for any person.  
There are many things that the person can post as tweets so that the people follow them and also buy their products. The most effective tweets will contain the most valuable offer, special offers, rates and the basic marketing practices. There should be a marketing team that can take care of the marketing on Twitter. This is because this can generate good business for any company.  
The most important strength of Twitter is that it brings distant people closer. This is because they can post any message and that will come up as tweets and more over the person does not have to put lots of effort in writing it. It is something that all the people who follow that particular person wait for the posts from them. They are always eager to know what will happen and what new promotions can come up.
 
Twitter is the help desk for many people
There are occasions when the person does not have the time to write much. He/ she is in such a situation where writing 160 characters is also not possible. In such a situation Twitter come to the rescue of many people. For example, in 2008 April a journalist who had just graduated from Berkeley was covering an agitation in Egypt. During this he got arrested and there was no time that he could write the message on the mobile. He just posted the word arrested on his profile in Twitter through his mobile phone. His followers in return informed the US Embassy in Egypt and at the same time alerted Berkeley. The outcome was great and a lawyer was hired for him to bail him out of the jail the very next day.  
This does not mean that to become popular the person on Twitter has to get arrested. By this, it means that if the person has a good profile on Twitter his/ her followers will go to any measure to help the person whom they are following. Twitter is a place where any person who is in any problem can ask for help and they will get some sort of help in return.
The easy way to find help on twitter is simple. It should be asked from people who the person knows has the power to do so. This can only work if there are many followers and the data base should be huge. As the number increases of the followers on Twitter, there are high chances that the person gets the help that he/ she asked for. This means that the person should always pay close attention to what their followers are saying in order to understand and know who would be the right person to ask for help. Also if the follower is unable to help, he/she will try to introduce someone who would be keen to help the person in need.

 

Twitter Blog


Promotion of blogs on Twitter is very important
When the publishing of blogs started, the significance of it was nothing more than the concept of online diaries for the people so that they could write exactly what they feel and what they thought. They wanted everyone to read what their exact feelings were. Today blogs have become more popular and the effect of publishing has grown. The blogs are more than a personal page today. It is more like an online magazine. Now the benefit of it is that the publishers can write anything they want and they get paid for the same. The only disadvantage of blog now is that they are no longer personal.  
The first or one can say the most important thing that Twitter does for a blog is to get the personality back for the writers. The bloggers use Twitter to give a brief introduction to the readers about their business, they give or can provide notes about their plans and the posts that they are working on and at the same time they answer the questions directly to the readers themselves. This can be done by anyone and they can create a blog for themselves and more over they should.
It should be kept in mind that if the blogs takes off for a particular person, then it won’t be possible for him/her to answer all the comments or the post that they receive every day. It is a fact that the writers should agree that their blogs wont interest all the people. The visitors would prefer to read about cars and photographs of the site that they are going to visit.  
The Twitter website can give the blogs and its publishers a space so that they can get a closer look about their readers. At the same time, the site can help the writer in getting more publicity and get new readers as well. The writers can announce their blogs on the site and it is very simple to do so. There are many sites on the net that charge huge amount of money to advertise but on Twitter, that is not the case at all. More over things are much simpler.  
This can simply be done by putting or posting tweets on their profile in the form of blogs and that has to have a personal message as well. The best part is that the person does not have to do anything spectacular. The person just has to include a title and a link to the message.  
Also the person should show that there is some sort of personal feeling involved in the blog that is posted. It should be such that the stranger is also ready to lend a hand in case the person is in some sort of problem. This way is becomes easy for the person who wants to get the publicity of the blog.  
In the beginning the person can start interacting with his/ her followers as to what they would like to discuss and what they would like to read next in their blog, things like that. If this is done then the follower will feel that they are getting personal attention from the writer.
In this fashion the writer can get the publicity that they are looking for and that also at no cost at all. Thus one can say that it is important that the write promotes the blogs through Twitter.

You can refer to q training guide how to build 2000 followers in 3 months by Yakitori, he has actually built 2000 followers in 3 months and publish his training in his blog.

There are also some company implemented Twitter and become successful for getting new business and customer, you may read the case study from a company by oursocialtimes.

Twitter comes with different add-ons and important applications
The most important thing that make Twitter such a success is its application and the add-ons that it comes with.  Twitter gives the right to the programmers so that they can write the applications so that anyone can use it. This is an important power or feature of Twitter. Some of these add ons are really odd, but at the same time there are many applications that are really helpful. There are many applications on Twitter that will allow the person to send their tweets even without opening their browser. This is something that all the high tech minded people love to do and they find it exciting as well. At the same time there are many useful applications that the user can skip to directly without going in to the details.
There are many complications also in the application. It is just that the person has to follow the simple steps that have to be done that they don’t face any complication in any of the applications. If this is done then the person won’t face any difficulty in using the application.
There is an instant messenger in Twitter that helps the person to know the tweets that he/ she get. This can be open and the notification comes while the person is working as well.  
One can say that the Twitter website is designed in such a fashion in which the common public can use it. It is designed in such a fashion that the child can also use.

Conclusion
Twitter is full of surprises. It is also very simple. The benefits and the fun that the person experiences in using it is incredible. It is an addiction for the people.
For the users of the internet it is a great way so that the people can stay in touch with one another. For the publishers who use the net, there is nothing that makes the readers and the customers feel close to the writer. This article states the benefits that the person can get from Twitter and the way that can help with the marketing online.  
It does not stop here. There are many companies that have benefited from Twitter. The site also helps the colleagues in knowing about different aspect of the fellows and also it will help them in their business.
This article also states that Twitter also helps many people in getting help. If there are people who are looking for some sort of help then the people on Twitter will help the person in need. The web data base is strong to such an extent that it can help any person who is in any sort of problem.
Thus one can say that Twitter is a site that helps the people in anything, including How to Make Money With Twitter above.

6 Lessons Learned From Wealthy Affiliate Marketing Training

6 Lessons Learned From Wealthy Affiliate Marketing Training

Online-training

This is my true experience learned from Wealthy Affiliate Marketing Training, after my first month in the program, I am in better position to give you my insight what is going on in the real world of Affiliate Marketing.

There are a lot of mis-understanding about Affiliate Marketing which attracting a lot of people to it believing they are true, make money is easy from Affiliate Marketing,  managing an online business is easy, make a fortune through online marketing in an instant and so on, this is not the actual case. Probably not even 10% of those who are into affiliate marketing became rich overnight. There may be some who fortunately achieved overwhelming success in just a short span of time after setting up an affiliate program, but not a majority of them can confidently say they only had luck. Anyone who is successful in this kind of business would say he worked hard to get to where he is right now. Success in affiliate marketing takes time and hard work, but it’s worth it.

Here are 6 lessons that I have learned from the truth about Affiliate Marketing from Wealthy Affiliate

1.  Know Who are Your Audience

The most successful way to use affiliate programs is to know what are your readers want, anticipate and meet the needs of your readers. What subject attract the reader coming to your site. What are you providing that they are looking for? Make sure the affiliate products you are promoting provide a solution to your audience's problems.

If you are writing about weight loss, don't put up affiliate ads for food discount coupon, this will contradict what you are telling your reader. The people who are coming to read your post and learning the system do not want to think about food  when they're on your site.

The more relevant the ads are to your readers, the more likely they will use them.

2.  Be Trustworthy

Nowadays, readers are savvy and extremely alert. They know that those are affiliate links when they see one. If you break their trust by promoting a product you don't even believe in or they though that you are taking advantage of their visit with too many ads, they will close and leave, never come back again.

Remember that It is your repeat visitors that will drive traffic to your site. They are the ones who will give you linkbacks, spread the word,sharing on their social media and recommend your site. You need to build a relationship based on genuine content and the value that they received by visiting your site.

If your visitors don't think that you're being honest, they won't read anything else you have to say.

3.  Select Your product Carefully

A good and experienced Affiliate Marketer will always take their time to go through all the different options for products or services available through different affiliate marketing programs and not in a rush to advertise anything available. Put some thought into the niche and consider which products or services your readers may need or like, do some keyword research through some trustable keyword research tools, we are using Jaxxy as a recommended keyword research tool in WA community. Also, change the ads around often, try different ones, and use different graphics and text to see which are the most effective and make your site look professional.

It may take some time before you figure out the best formula to your success in Affiliate Marketing, and you may also find that you need to have good keyword build in and continually renew your ads to attract more attention.

4.  Write Good Content

Your content is your foundation, the life blood on which the site exists. Without valuable and helpful content, readers won't come. Focus on providing excellent content and the monetizing strategies will work out.

The key to draw visitors to your website is to have high quality content; thus, the next thing you must pay attention to in building your marketing website is this. There may be several other factors that contribute to the success of your affiliate marketing site, but a good content tops the list. This is precisely the reason why users choose to enter your site. They want to get information and so when they don’t find it, they would definitely go elsewhere. Write interesting articles related to your theme as this would make them visit your site more frequently. If you have already looked for affiliate programs that complement your site, add links to the business sites and other very good informative sites. Links contribute to how well you will be listed in major search engines as well. Also, create pages for the products you are endorsing, but don’t just promote the products by putting hyperlink ads. Keep your readers interested by injecting lots of relevant and useful information, research the keyword using Jaxxy, find the good to best keyword to use in your content. This would make them click the link to the business site and buy the product. Remember that no good content means no frequent visitors, no sales and ultimately, no commission.

5. Grow your site

Grow from where you started. Learn about use of keywords for search engine optimization and apply them in your content. Update your site regularly or add new webpages. Make sure to inform your prospects about the latest updates in your site. You can use newsletters to accomplish this. The Internet offers a huge source of information about just anything, make use of it. Continue to educate yourself on how to improve your website and soon you’ll find yourself successful in affiliate marketing.

Keep up to date on the latest offerings of your affiliate programs. New ad units, advertisers, and tools are constantly being added to improve usability and be more visually appealing. Small changes go a long way in motivating action by readers to come to your site more often, read your post and share with their friends.

Signup with Google Analytics, monitoring your website traffic and trends and exploring new opportunities to meet the reader who coming to your site.

Last but not least

6.  Be Patient

Affiliate revenue grows and builds up with time. Remember that some programs offer lifetime payouts. If you refer a visitor, you may continue to make money from that one visitor even if he doesn't come back to your site. Also, as long as you have referral links still active in your old posts, they may still payout for you.

Affiliate programs aren't a get rich quick plan, but it provides good and workable opportunity to make passive income from your blog.
